JOHN BOYD'S MAGNUM OPUS
I'm nearing the end of Robert Coram's bio of maverick fighter pilot turned theorist, John Boyd. Had Tom Barnett not endorsed the significance of Boyd's contribution to military thought I'd have probably tossed the book on my towering " to be read eventually" pile with no particular hurry to get to it. Reading Coram's book, which is, as praktike
had commented, somewhat light, spurred me to take a firsthand look at Boyd's work, so I found a copy of his paper/brief " Destruction and Creation".
The man was a visionary genius. We should all see so far.
